I am building a website and so far have 3 pages done. (I am using frontpage)
I have put a 'back' link on page 2 and it works fine and goes back to the home page. I tried putting another link on page 3 saying 'home' and set the target as home.htm which is my home pages name, when I click ctrl and mouse to check it it says that home.htm cannot be found, I have searched the net and all info says same and I have followed it and its still the same, I cant seem to link back to my home page, I dont knw what I am doing wrong and have been struggling for hours now, can someone please help me with instructions in plain english as I am new to all this, Thanks Sylvia. :tazz:

Make sure all your .htm files are in the same folder. If they aren't then you have specify the path to the file in the link rather than just <A href="home.htm"> You would have to do something like <A href="../home.htm"> or something along those lines. Also you will have to name your homepage index.htm or default.htm.

Some servers allow home.htm to be a homepage. My server says it will use the following in order of priority:

index.*,home.*,main.*,start.*,begin.*

*can be XML, HTML, HTM, CGI, or PHP.
